This iReport is part of an assignment:
Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments
Obesity for dummies!
So that we are on the same page, you should know that I learned all of this on my own and nobody taught my any of this.
I was a very big person and totally uncomfortable in my own skin. Self Esteem? What is that?
I was once married to an even larger woman who turned out to be more insane than she was heavy, But this isn't about her, or that either.
I can remember eating two double Quarter Pounders with Cheese, a Supersized Fry, A Super Sized Milk Shake, Four apple, or cherry pies.... OH! and don't forget the Super Sized Diet Coke!
None of this matters either, I ate like a big fat fat guy and I almost died from the type II diabetes that I aquired from my bad diet and my bad lifestyle and today, I'm not sure what I weigh because I've been avoiding scales for too many years, But regardless I went from a 50" waist to a 36" waist while sitting on my what has no become my not so big butt!
And the most ridiculous thing is that I really truly totally did it while sitting down. I am disabled and I cannot exercise.
There are some things going on in your body and in your head that are causing you to over eat and to not be able to control your consumption to the point that it is literally killing millions of people with health issues directly related to your diet and lifestyle and I am here to let you know that you don't need JENNY, You don't need weight watchers, that you don't need lapbands and other insane stomach gadgets from the latest nutjob doctor to come down the pike.
Fitness Made Simple and those kinds of things that promote physical activity are great, but you'll never be able to anything without changing your diet and lifestyle along with it.
To be perfectly honest the only way anything will work to take the weight and keep it off is what you're about to learn from me.
When you eat any foods, or use any products that contain any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives it causes your brain stem to swell, many of you will feel pain that translates into what they call a Migraine Headache, But in reality it's a part of the allergic reaction tat we all have to the petroleum based coal tar food dyes, being made from what is essentially the same coal tar that is used to pave the roads across America, it's very simply not good for anyone and should be banned at once!
This applies to using soaps, shampoos, or even cologne/aftershave and heavily dyed clothing like denim can effect you with the migraine and swelling of your brain stem.
It is unavoidable because absolutely every man, woman and child in the world is allergic to those toxic chemical additives and the way it effects everyone is relative from one person to the next.
The above link is to the part of the brain that helps control your diet and consumption. Swelling of the brain stem combined with the physical pressure against the delicate tissues of the brain cause pressure on the Hypothalamus and this disrupts it's ability to function.
The swelling of the brain stem pressing against those brain tissues plus the intracranial from the disruption of the flow of cerebrospinal fluid cause these problems in everyone.
It took many many years to put the weight on and to think it's going to come right off seems somewhat insane but really it's not that far fetched!
When you eat and your stomach starts to fill with the food things like the Hypothalamus communicate with the stomach and when the stomach reaches its capacity it says hey bran, stop sending down the food, I am getting full! But the brain sits there and waits, but that signal doesn't arrive and you continue to stuff yourself and it really is uncontrollable.
The difference is how I feel today, I used to be able to eat all that McDonalds junk and today, if I dared to eat at Mcdonalds again, I don't think I could even finish half of a Happy Meal.
The difference today is like night and day to the way I used to stuff myself.
If you think this is a bunch of B.S. I want you to know that the type II diabetes that almost had me graduating into full blown diabetes with daily insulin injections that would last the rest of my life.... is completely gone!
I couldn't believe it and I tested myself, I ate two ice cream cones, 6 peanut butter cookies and some juice or something and the following morning, I expected it to be something like 253, or 300 and my meter told me it was 148.
I tested everyone in the house thinking my metter was broken, but it wasn't and my diabetes really was and is gone! That's not a dream, its real and I did it without doctors, without medications and without any help from any corporate sponsored program to help you be what Hollywood tells you to be.
How did I do it?
I ATE FOOD!
There's a disease called GSD, Glycogen Storage Disease, It's caused by some enzymes that are produced by the body that are either not being produced or are somehow being what seems like it's being switched off!
This EPA document found on the NOAA website talks about AZO compounds, Azo compounds are another term used for stuff like Red Dye #40.
The EPA says that the azo compounds are acutely toxic by ALL routes of exposure and basically that means that all of the petroleum based coal tar dyes are toxic and it doesn't matter if it's in your food, beverages, drugs.pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, toiletries, blue jeans, finger paints, or what have you.
But what it says about the enzymes is particularly important to understanding just how this obesity epidemic is able to run so wild in America.
I believe the enzymes that are produced by the Pancreas and the Gall Bladder are both effected by the dyes inactivating not only the enzymes but they are damaging the Gall Bladder and Pancreas. How many people do you know who have had their Gall Bladder removed because of an overabundance of stones. oddly those stones seem to be quite colorful, I wonder if that has something to do with the dyes also?
The Gall Bladder produced Bile, basically the stuff your body uses to break down the foods you eat to aid in the absorbtion of the nutrients in the foods you eat. The Pancreas not only produced the insuling you use to metabolise the sugars you eat but it also produced something they call pancreatic juice which is used in the lower intestine to again break down the foods so your body can absorb them. When inactivated they don't break down the foods and they do not get used like they are supposed to, with the correct and proper nutrients your body and immune system suffers.
If your body doesn't process the food like it is supposed to things will not be right and things will not work like they should!
Obesity is a combination of problems, The hypothalamus doesnt tell the brain to tell your mouth to stop sending the food, your stomach isn't able to tell your brain it's getting full and this is how it was for before my diet and lifestyle changes and now it's like none of those problems existed, with the exception of the extra skin that once held all my chubby stuff!
The way I did this was to stop eating at any and all restaurants, cook everything both my wife and I eat at home and avoid all products of all kinds that contain any of the additives.
This problem has a broad scope in that it's not just the dyes that are a problem and when you stop the restaurants and stop buying all the corporate made products that contain all the artificial colors, flavors and preservatives, not only do you get out from under the thumb of those corporations. When you are noting giving your monies to them, you get to keep it and spend it on yourself!
Buy only local fresh produce, fresh products, do stuff like mom used to back when she made the jelly, canned the pickles and jellies and jams in her kitchen.
You can absolutely change your life in the cvery same manner as I have and it doesn't cost you a single penny, you spend your money on food, real food and not processed garbage that only makes you sick and ill.
The whole natural and organic thing isn't so much about eating natural and organic as it is eating real food, without chemicals, without hormones and antibiotics.
Eliminate the additives and all the products that contain them! To simplify them if you can shop exclusively as an organic and natural store. Whole Foods Markets are a great way to accomplish this feat becaue it's all natural and all organic and there are no known harmful additives in anything, This would be perfect while you learn and find the things you can get without having to rely on a store that again is corporate owned. This is why people are shopping locally, support the local farmers and keep the local dollars local.
if you spend your money that way, the money he/she gets will be spent locally too and this is good for you and bad for the huge corporations that are profitting from all the ailments, disorders and problems shared by the of the 300+ million American men, woman and children.
If you step back and look at the big picture this isn't about me, it isn't about you it's all about the future and the future of our children and our children's children.
The chemicals damage our DNA and our DNA is passed on to our children. If you want your grand child to be born without a functioning pancreas, or be born with cancer already raging through their body right after they open their eyes for the first time. Continue eating the junk and the toxic additives and don't bother changing anything. But if your future is important to you like mine is to me.
You will take this information and run with it.
